‘The Truth Coming Out of her Well to Shame Mankind'
Based on a #quotation from #Democritus
According to a 19th-century legend, the #Truth and the #Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvelous day today”! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well.
The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!” The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water & discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress & start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth, & runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well & runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The #World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt & rage. The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame.
Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbors no wish at all to meet the #naked Truth.
Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water.
Lay your bed where the cat sleeps.
Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm.
Boldly pick the mushroom on which the insects sit.
Plant the tree where the mole digs.
Build your house where the snake sits to warm itself.
Dig your fountain where the birds hide from heat.
Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds – you will reap all of the days golden grains.
Eat more green – you will have strong legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of the forest.
Swim often and you will feel on earth like the fish in the water.
Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear.
Be quiet a lot, speak little – and silence will come in your heart, and your spirit will be calm and full of peace.
Saint Seraphim of Sarov, russian monk. 1754-1833.

sharing to ask all the #lefties what they actually meant by "unity":
It’s over everyone, you can sleep easy again - the party of #peace, #tolerance, and #reconciliation is back in #power. #Amen. And #Awomen.
They claim they want to #heal and #unify the nation.
But clearly the only way to do so is to create enemies lists and #silence anyone with #dissenting #opinions.
For example, Rep. Alexandria #Ocasio-Cortez asked,
“Is anyone archiving these #Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their #complicity in the future?”Robert #Reich, Labor Secretary under #Clinton, and adviser to #Obama, Tweeted,
“When this nightmare is over, we need a #Truth and #Reconciliation Commission [to] name every official, #politician, #executive and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”Chris #Hayes, an #MSNBC host agreed saying,
“The most #humane and #reasonable way to deal with all these people, if we survive this, is some kind of truth and reconciliation commission.”And Dick #Costolo, the former #CEO of #Twitter, said,
“Me-first capitalists … are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the #revolution. I’ll happily provide video commentary.”Clearly social media companies like Twitter are a big part of the efforts to unify the nation.
Twitter deleted 70,000 accounts using the trespassing of the #Capitol as an excuse.
#Amazon Web Services removed the alternative social media site #Parler from its servers, while #Apple and #Google deleted Parler from their app stores.
#Facebook and #Reddit joined the purge, feverishly removing content that they don’t want their users to see.
#Stripe, #PayPal, and #Visa announced they would stop processing payments to certain politicians and non-profits
Yesterday I read in the completely fair and objective media that simply acknowleding this tech purge makes one a #conspiracy #theorist.
#Axios news wrote a segment titled, Right wing’s new conspiracy: “The silencing”.
They went on to say that only crazy conspiracy theorists believe that there are efforts to #silence #conservative voices.
In other words, if you believe what you can see with your own eyes, you’re a conspiracy theorist.
Most recently, for example, #Harvard has purged #Congresswoman Elise #Stefanik from its advisory board.
Stefanik’s crime? She publicly questioned #voting #irregularities in the 2020 #election.
Now, some people may think that she’s a terrible person because of her beliefs. And in fairness it’s Harvard’s right to choose whoever they want for their board.
But now there’s a petition from the woke Harvard #mob to #revoke her degree, effectively erasing her existence from the institution.
They want to #cancel her. Yet even merely acknowledging that this is happening now makes you a conspiracy theorist according to the media.
The left’s cries of “ #de-fund the police” have turned to “fund the #secret #police,” as lawmakers reintroduce “domestic terror” bills to create new units under the Department of Homeland Security to monitor American “ #extremism”.
But the #assassinatetrump and #killtrump hashtags that Twitter has allowed since 2016— that’s totally fine free speech!
During the summer #BLM riots, #looting #Target stores and burning down police stations were acts of #courage.
They even literally declared an independent #autonomous #zone and took over government buildings. Yet no one in the media ever used the words #insurrection, #sedition, or #treason.
#AOC praised these mostly peaceful protests and said the entire point of them is “to make people feel uncomfortable.”
But if you feel the slightest bit uncomfortable that 25,000 troops are in the nation’s capital, along with tanks and attack helicopters, then you’re a (you guessed it!) conspiracy theorist.
Remember, though, #ignorance is #strength, so we should probably just #obey the experts.
Trust in Social Security to provide retirement. Trust the Federal Reserve to improve the economy. Trust the media to tell the truth. Trust that the tech companies will continue to allow your free speech.
Or… as an alternative… make your own Plan B.
